42,000 New Jobs, $29 Billion in Economic Gain Created if Propane GAS Act Passed by Congress
January 10, 2012 — ROUSH CleanTech, a leading manufacturer of propane autogas fuel systems, and its customers applaud the findings of an independent analysis that confirms the Propane Green Autogas Solutions (GAS) Act of 2011 (H.R. 2014/S. 1120) would create a substantial economic boom to the U.S. economy. According to the study, passage of the legislation could create up to $5.7 billion dollars per year in new economic activity and 42,000 net new jobs in the U.S. over the next five years.
“With presidential election activities heating up, the issue of job creation and the economy is plastered across the news headlines every day. Right now, Congress is holding the key to legislation that could drive significant economic activity in our country, and that key is passage of the Propane GAS Act,” said Joe Thompson, president of ROUSH CleanTech. “Extending these tax incentives is critical to providing solutions to three important issues dominating the headlines; job creation, stimulating economic growth, and delivering on energy security through the use of a domestically produced alternative to gasoline and diesel.”
